By now we've ascertained that sb's body is not 'regular'. So what does this statement mean?
Well, let's see:
Cycle One post pills: started two and a half months after throwing the pills away. This time frame, I've learned, is normal.
Cycle Two: longer than it should have been...
Cycle Three: same
Cycle Four: 'normal 28 days'....
And then long again.
At that point my longest cycle was 42 days...This present cycle may beat it! We'll see.
And worse than the roller-coaster of a crazy long cycle and feeling crazy pms/pregnancy symptoms from day seven onward, is the many many tests I took because I was so sure I MUST have been pregnant. One day late means pregnant, doesn't it?
It was a hormonally imbalanced, schizophrenic time in my life.
And while dealing with this physically chaotic battle, I was trying to avoid the constant questions about when I was finally going to conceive; or the people who said if only I gained weight, if only I lost weight, if I tried this position or that food, etc., etc.
But they didn't know.
It was a lonely, very heartbreaking time for me as I had to come to terms with my body's limitations for the first time. It is tough to know we have limits; it was even tougher to know that procreation may just be mine.
To be continued.
